Week 12/31/16 Chicks in the nest!

Rockitglider
Hello everyone, I'm so excited! I saw 2 chicks with my binoculars, but only able to catch a shot of 1 head sticking up with the camera. I was far from the nest to be able to get the right angle to see the chicks because they are so small I can't see them when closer to the nest. So I have to say 2 chicks at a minimum as of today. Awesome! I only saw one adult today after being there for 3 hours, I'm going to return for the next two days to see if I can get better shots for a solid count of chicks, and to make sure the other adult is around and okay.

This is very exciting!  Hopefully the second eagle was out hunting..  I did see one eagle in the tree just west of the tree with the nest on Saturday morning around 10 a.m., but wasn't able to see much else since I was driving by ...

Saw the pair when I was riding my bike inside Quiet Waters Park yesterday, about 10AM.  Both are definitely there.
